French Garden Windmill

A wonderfully quirky French model windmill with lots of character.

If you’re looking for a fun focal point for your garden, try this garden windmill! We love this mid 20th-century model, which we found in France.

Windmills were popular garden ornaments, probably because like their real counterparts, their sails move in the wind, making them a pleasingly interactive feature. And of course, there is the added benefit of acting as a bird scarer (in windy weather only, however!).

This particular model is particularly appealing with its brightly painted sails; and with its metal, derrick-style uprights, it’s quirky without being twee.

French, mid 20th century.

Size: height 164cm, width 24cm, depth 24cm
